IMC and CAIA vs the CFA

As a graduate, is it worth getting an IMC and/or CAIA designation, or should I skip these and start working towards the CFA?

I know the latter takes a lot of time and effort so part of me thinks I should get straight to work, but equally it sounds like it would be good to have some smaller accreditations ASAP.

Perhaps IMC and CAIA knowledge would be transferable to CFA exams?
